10 Fit Tips for Beginners | Fitness Advice for Beginners
My top tips to starting, and maintaining, a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine.
Keep it simple. Don’t start too much at once. Pick a habit, nail it for a few weeks & then add another healthy habit.
If an exercise hurts – stop! Muscle burning is fine, but an exercise that hurts or gives you discomfort later needs to be modified.
Add 1 green veggie a day. They are super nutritious and green veggies, like lettuces, cucumbers, asparagus, green beans, will fill you up without any harm to waistline.
Don’t skip the carbs. Our muscles need healthy carbs. Try adding sweet potatoes, oatmeal, fruit and whole grains into your daily diet.
Stay away from extremes. We can only handle “extreme” dieting for a short time. Think lifestyle, not a quick five or ten pounds.
Reduce salt and sugar intake. Read your food labels, and prep as many meals as you can – packaged meals can be high in sodium and/or sugar.
Always exercise on a Monday. Start the week with a workout and chances are higher you’ll continue that momentum as the week goes.
Try to walk more than you drive. See where, in your day, you can add incremental movement.
Walk off a big meal. This will help stabilize the blood sugar levels, which in turn will help keep your metabolism steady.
Smile more, stress less. Meditation will help with this, learn to quiet the mind and happiness, and better health, will follow.
